Three strange days 

The name for this post was indeed chosen with a head-nod to the minor alterna-hit song of the same name (that made the radio playlists for about 17 minutes in 1991) by one of the pre-grunge alternative rock bands School of Fish.  Here’s a link to the video for anyone interested. 😉 Wasn’t that cool … More Three strange days 

Fresh (Word)pressing

Today (and yesterday), I was impressively productive–so much so that I took the luxury of some Me Time tonight.  With my partner firmly entrenched in a new episode of “Alaska State Troopers”, I sought out some fresh literary meat. Pretty much everyone and his/her dog is familiar with the Freshly Pressed feature of WordPress.  In … More Fresh (Word)pressing

File under: “I’m married to my illness and refuse to get better”

Rated R for language.  And it’s long, so grab some tea or something.  You’ve been warned. After days like today, it’s easy to surmise that all patients are psychotic.  After all, we’ve already established that all massage therapy clients are, so why not patients as well?  And although the simple majority of patients are nice, … More File under: “I’m married to my illness and refuse to get better”

Step right up

I meant to write about this last month, but life took over and since I’m the proud owner of a forced vacay, I thought I’d catch up on some much-needed blogging. Last month, we visited the lush, Great Green North that is southwestern Alberta, Canada.  The trip’s purpose was sort of an all-in-one kill-a-flock-with-one-stone.  Not … More Step right up

It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine. So much for my happy ending

Not that I’m exactly torn between the creations of REM and Avril Lavigne respectively…although the former is borderline-divine. Yeah, apparently the world was supposed to come to a screeching halt today and those who had accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior were supposed to enter a warp zone on a fast track to … More It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

Soup: Tan resistance, Bullet-dodging, Sleep, Internet browsers suck, and Facebook (always) sucks

Back in the MySpace days, (which I’m increasingly tempted to resurrect), I blogged a little on my page.  It wasn’t much, but it was fun.  Back then, I often couldn’t think of a lot to say about any one thing so I took a few dominant thoughts circling around my head and put them into … More Soup: Tan resistance, Bullet-dodging, Sleep, Internet browsers suck, and Facebook (always) sucks

Fruitcakes and Cornflakes: how lunacy in alternative medicine harms people

Just….wow. I had the pleasure of being a member of a forum, primarily women, who discussed health concerns and post questions about natural avenues of treatment. It is hosted/facilitated by a “Wellness Educator” (her unofficial title, according to her website) without any actual standardized training or degree of any kind.  This person is giving medical … More Fruitcakes and Cornflakes: how lunacy in alternative medicine harms people
